Come and join Club of the Year!
Korfball is a growing sport which is becoming increasingly popular at universities. It is a mixed sport, with men and women playing on the same court, and the setup of the game is a kind of mix between basketball and netball.
Korfball at Hallam is an open and friendly club, and we're growing and developing year on year. Last year (2019) we won Club of the Year as well as being nominated for many other awards at the Sports Ball. We take part in regular socials, volunteering and charity opportunities and there's always someone doing something near by, whether that be a trip to the pub or a gym date.
Our club has 4 teams competing in BUCS championships, which are typically held in the form of weekend tournaments and. A fifth team/development squad also train to provide opportunities for developing players. All 5 of our teams compete in the Yorkshire Korfball League, through regular weekend fixtures, and they all show their flare at varisty!
Training and home matches are usually held at EIS.
Come down and learn about one of the fastest growing sports and develop your skills in a friendly fun environment. The Social Sport Activators will help you learn the essential skills and rules needed to play Korfball. Once you’ve got the basics, expect plenty of game time to help hone your new found skills. These sessions are closely linked with the Korfball club so there's a real social feel to the sessions as well as clear progression pathways if you get the Korfball buzz.
Sessions are £2.50 or free if you have a SHU-Active or Team Hallam membership. Just turn up on the day, or you can book in advance with our online booking system, or at SHU-Active reception. See our social sport timetable to find a session. For any questions email us.
